Mobil-1 Extended Life 10w60
An ideal engine oil for all Porsche made before 1998, such as the 924, 944, 968, 911 3.0SC, 911 3.2 Carrera, 964, 993, Turbo and non turbo models. We have also had it confirmed from Mobil that this product contains ZDDP in proportions of 1300 parts per million, which is an additive originally in most high performance oils, but now is more difficult to find and is essential to Porsche engines made prior to 1998.
Mobil Super 2000 X1 10w40
The comprimise oil.. This product is the very best semi synthetic that we could find. Excellent synthetic content (30%) whereas some have as little as 3%. Also being a Mobil product, this also has the very best additive package available in a semi synthetic oil. Very much suitable for almost any Porsche, but please check your owners handbook, however we believe this oil falls within the correct grade for use in all Porsche models in our climate here in the UK.
Mobil Super 3000 X1 5w40
A thiner oil and our recommendation for water cooled Porsche 911 models made since 1998, a fully synthetic product produced to the highest standards. We would not recommend this oil is used in pre 1998 cars, however it may provide power gains in performance with older cars, at the expense of ultimate engine life, oil consumption and may be more prone to leak in older vehicles.
